No CCTV of rail station attack yobs; CRIME.


THE faces of the two thugs who shoved a woman on to a 750-volt live railway line were not caught on CCTV cameras at the station.

Shocked Linda Buchanan, 58 - who suffered a broken wrist - said she felt lucky to be alive after the attack.

Yesterday British Transport Police said: "Unfortunately the CCTV at the station does not show the incident. It is not very clear and does not show their faces."

But police said they will study other cameras along the route from Farningham Road Station, near Dartford, Kent, to London Victoria.

The mum of three, a management consultant in the City, had ticked off two men, in their 20s, on Monday and Tuesday for flouting the no smoking ban.

On Wednesday the pair saw her again waiting for the 7.12am commuter train and pushed her on to the line.

A neighbour in Horton Kirby said: "Mrs Buchanan is traumatised."
